[applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga

to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look

and his wife, michele obama. >> michele was unbelievable. >> and joe biden. >> john kerry. >> john kerry did well, biden did well, clinton was incredible, michele obama was incredible. but you know, it -- >> it's a high bar to clear for the guy. >> and also, though, if you want to compare it to tampa, i mean, obviously so much -- >> they had to hold everyone back. >> so much better than everybody at tampa. we're not going to even -- but as far as substance goes, i agree. >> beautiful. >> he said nothing, but he said nothing so much better than mitt romney said nothing. >> yeah. >> which i was talking -- >> that's it. >> let's be clear, we were talking about how high the bar was for obama. talk about mitt romney, it's a low bar for mitt romney to clear that bar. he was somewhere in between those things. i thought the first two-thirds of the speech, and many people have said this, it did feel like a state of the union speech. little bit of a laundry list and very -- not just as mark said, not only did he say nothing new, he said nothing bold and he said nothing very specific. you know, one
